Dunkelweizen is an amber colored version of a Bavarian hefeweizen, with a hazy mahogany color, medium-full body, and spicy, bready aromas and flavors.

We strongly recommend ordering dry yeast in the summer months. We do include complimentary Cold Ice Packs with all liquid yeasts. However, it is difficult to guarantee that the ice packs will survive the trip, given transit times and particularly hot temperatures.

Product Details
Its name means "dark wheat," and that's just what it is. An amber-colored version of a German hefeweizen, Dunkelweizen has the same spicy yeast and creamy wheat character of its pale counterpart, but with as much rich maltiness as a dark Bavarian lager. This kit produces an ale with a hazy mahogany color, medium-full body, and spicy, bready aromas and flavors.

It's that little something more than a plain hefeweizen
Very easy to brew. I added a little caramunich malt into the recipe to give it that little extra kick. Went with the wyeast 3068 and held temps around 67-68F. The banana/clove smell and taste are spot on.

This Is Great!
This was my 1st Northern Brewer recipe and I have to say that this is AMAZING! I followed the enclosed NB instructions with only one exception--I steeped 8oz of Caramunich I. I would say that this is on par with some of the $9 bottles of Dunkelweizen that I have purchased from local beer stores. Can't wait to share this one with friends and family. This is a beer that any home brewer can be proud of! Bravo Northern Brewer!

My Husband's Favorite
If you're expecting Franziskaner, this is not it, but it's a great beer. I brewed this in September and we've been drinking it all winter. Easy to brew, and every time I share some with my husband, he says, "Yeah, that IS good beer...is there another bottle?" Let it sit for at least 4 weeks in the bottle.

Big Hit For My Octoberfest Party
Tasted great prior to carbonation - great spices and aroma. Got a little funky after carbonation but finished very nicely after a week or so. It was a big hit at the party! Will definitely buy again for next year!

Good flavor
I added a lb of chocolate malt to this recipe and it comes out great. Good malty sweetness with a hint of hops. Great for a cold winter night.

Best Brew Yet
I have brewed around a dozen extract kits thus far. Not an expert yet but this is my best brew yet. Brewed twice already.

Is there a 1 gallon small batch kit for this beer? I want to try using oak chips or smoked malts, but don't want to risk messing up a 5 gallon batch.
A shopper on Feb 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not sure about the one gallon. I made the five and it was great. I would just go for it.
Will be bottling soon. Any suggestions on the proper amount of priming sugar?

BEST ANSWER: for a 5 gal batch 5.oz

Previous kits had me steep crushed grains in a cheesecloth type bag before adding LME.This kit doesn't have the grains or bag. Is it supposed to be like this?
P A on May 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes his kit has two malt bottles. its as simple as simple can be. the Dunkelweizen came out great! two of my buddies that are avid brewers and do all grain and they thought it tasted great. I recommend using the Wyeast Laboratories. Weihenstephan 3068 yeast. i would also recommend using 22oz bottles if you are going to bottle.
Is there a 1 gallon small batch extract kit for this beer? I want to experiment with smoked malts or wood chips, but I don't want to risk screwing up a 5 gallon batch.
Benjamin B on Feb 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for the request! There is currently no 1 gallon kit but I will pass along your request. We do post the recipes and you could try getting 1/5th the ingredients and brewing a recipe that way. Cheers!
